The modern woman knows that fashion and sophistication go hand-in-hand. Below we’ve got a great outfit idea inspired from a mix of business casual and everyday casual. It’s fun, fashionable, chic and completely appropriate for semi-formal events and office meetings followed by a night out with friends.
Start with a collar pin shirt; try a short-sleeve style with a rounded collar like this one. I love the pin dot print on this shirt because it adds a touch of subtle flare that’s perfectly appropriate for any occasion. The back of this shirt features a slightly gathered centre which keeps it from appearing boxy and instead looks form fitted. Lightweight and basic, this shirt is so versatile you’re sure to get loads of use out of it.
Next, add a casual blazer or jacket. I particularly love this elbow patch jacket as it is super comfortable, made of 100% cotton, and incredibly stylish. The nautical-inspired stripe pattern is slimming and works to compliment your figure. Plus the single-breasted button front is simple while the solid blue elbow patches add a modern twist on the sophisticated style. It’s fun and unique yet appropriate for both casual and classy occasions. Wear it over your favourite shift dress for a flirtier look!
Lastly, throw on a pair of your favourite dark coloured trousers and grab a pair of ladies Dune boots. The Dune Bingley D’s are an amazing pair of ankle boot heels made of premium suede and nubuck. The stiletto style heel and lace-up front make these heels chic and fabulous and perfect for work or play, or both! These will add a little pep to your step while still maintaining that smart twist look you’re going for.
Pair it all together and you’ve got a marvellous new outfit that’s perfect for a day in the office follower by a night on the town!
